How do I arrange a car donation in New York?

Refer to the New York DMV for forms and details on vehicle donation.

It's easy to complete a New York car donation. Car donation pick up sites are available throughout the state of New York. Vehicles donated in New York to a non-profit classified with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization are deductible from your federal income taxes. In most cases, the state of New York requires that the donor have the vehicle title. If you do not have title papers, you can either apply for a replacement title or, if your vehicle is at least eight model years old and worth less then $1250, fill out form MV35. Visit the New York Department of Motor Vehicles web site to obtain the necessary forms before donating. To release liability of your donated vehicle in New York, the New York DMV requires that you surrender the license plates of your donated vehicle. For additional information, please refer to the New York DMV web site.
